"Pretty Killbots" [mp3 removed]
Continuing series where live analog synth passages are augmented with more "scripted" rhythms and/or melodies. As the title suggests the idea here was to wed the heavenly and the obnoxious. The tune from "Miasmatic Wave Crunch," played here with an e-piano and a video-gamy sampled Sidstation patch, is layered over some doomy analog grunts and complaints. The melody got boring after a few repetitions so I was forced to write some variations and counterpoint--darn, that's hard--so the song now has a narrative arc.
